Rewriting history
Palestinian history fabricated
Rewriting history
Rewriting the history of the Land of Israel in order to deny Israel's right to exist is central to Palestinian Authority (PA) policy. Long before it started the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005), the PA was fighting a history war – erasing Jewish history and replacing it with a fabricated Palestinian history. This rewriting has two central goals:
1- Erase the Jewish nation's 3,000 year history in the Land of Israel;
2- Invent ancient Palestinian, Muslim and Arab histories in the land.

The goal of this historical revision as a political strategy was first expressed publicly at a conference of Palestinian historians in 1998, when rewriting history was linked to the political goal of denying Israel's right to exist:
"Dr. Yussuf Alzamili [Chairman History Department, Khan Yunis Educational College] called on all universities and colleges to write the history of Palestine and to guard it, and not to enable the [foreign] implants and enemies to distort it or to legitimize the existence of Jews on this land... [History lecturer Abu Amar] clarified that there is no connection between the ancient generation of Jews and the new generation." [Al-Ayyam, Dec. 4, 1998].
 
Erasing Jewish history in the land of Israel is followed by the PA’s invention of ancient and modern histories that support its political ideology and claim to the land of Israel. The Holocaust and other aspects of Jewish history are alternately denied, downplayed or distorted. Another distortion is to hide from Palestinians that Jesus was a Jew who lived in the Land of Judea/Israel. PA leaders repeatedly define Jesus as a Palestinian who preached Islam, thus denying not only Jewish history, but also the history and legitimacy of Christianity.

Citing numerous examples, this section will document that these and other historical revisions are an integral part of Palestinian policy and are used to create political ideology.
Palestinian history fabricated
Having erased Jewish history, the PA fills the historical void by fabricating the ancient histories of Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims. PA academics claim that Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims all populated the Land of Israel in Biblical times and even earlier. These fictions are all historically impossible, as the name “Palestine" as a replacement for the Land of Judea/Israel was coined by Rome only in 136 C.E., Islam was established only in 610 C.E., and Arabs first arrived in Israel with the Muslim invasion in 637 C.E.

Inventing thousands of years of history when none existed is accomplished through numerous distortions and lies, including changing the Biblical Canaanites into Arabs, changing Biblical Israelis, Judeans and Hebrews into Arabs and Muslims, changing the religion preached by Moses from Judaism into Islam, and changing Jesus into a Palestinian who preached Islam and not Christianity.

This so-called documentary depicting Biblical Canaanites as Arabs, broadcast many times on PA TV, is one example of this PA historical revision.
"The Arab Canaanites established ports on the coast of Canaan, known today as Palestine. Palestine was attacked by invaders, but its Arab Canaanite features withstood attempts to change them. Jaffa was one of the cities whose Canaanite origins the invaders failed to erase." [PA TV, repeatedly, 2005-2007.]
 
The documentary further invents history by indicating visually that the victims of the Roman invasion were Arabs, not the Jewish kingdom of Judea.
Song on PA TV to Britain: “We will erase the memory of the Balfour Declaration;” "We are rooted in this land from the days of the Canaanites" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Nov. 1, 2018

Song “Listen Balfour, Listen” performed by Qassem Al-Najjar and Shadi Al-Burini

Lyrics: “O Balfour, years have gone
Generations have gone until now
You have gone and others have gone, yet this is the land of Palestine
Regardless of the time that passes, we will erase the memory of this [Balfour] Promise
Listen Balfour, listen
The right of my land will yet return
We bow only to Allah
We are the Palestinians…
We are your owners, Palestine
And we are rooted in this land from the days of the Canaanites
We have identity
Palestine’s history is great, Jerusalem is ours and no one else’s
Regardless of your efforts to falsify, this land is Palestinian…
O British man, listen up
You must apologize to us
This homeland is ours, and not the Zionists’
You deprived my precious homeland
You stole the right to my land and gave it to the Zionist
This is an international crime
Balfour [of] the ominous promise committed a crime against my oppressed people
We will not be silent from this day forward, we will not forget the cause"

PA TV portrays Israel as foreign colonial occupier, claims ancient Jewish history is Palestinian 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 30, 2018

The PA TV video shows a woman who represents "ancient Palestinians" (or possibly Muslims) going through the history of the land - replacing the Jewish people's actual history. The woman is introduced in a peaceful scene feeding birds in a period predating the Roman conquest of Judea and destruction of the Temple in 70 CE. Suddenly the scene is disturbed, the birds scatter and the woman runs away from various foreign invaders: first an ancient Roman soldier, then a Crusader, then a British soldier, and finally a Jew (wearing a skullcap), who throws a lit cigarette at her.
In the final scene, the woman stops fleeing when a man on a horse - the "new" Muslim conqueror Saladin who defeated the Crusaders - extends his hand and helps her up the mountain. He represents the coming savior who will "liberate Palestine" from Jewish-Israeli rule. In the end, the woman stands on the top of the mountain, fleeing no one anymore, symbolizing that Israel is gone like the other foreign rulers.

"The occupation authorities continue to falsify and steal Palestinian antiquities at the archaeological site at the Herodium fortress..."
Official PA TV reporter: "The occupation tries to exploit the heritage sites for the benefit of the Israeli narrative: the existence of Jewish history on the land of Palestine.

"Before you [the Jews] say Jerusalem is your capital, you must open the chests of millions [of Palestinians] with butchers' knives in order to uproot the city from within them, seal off the women's wombs, expel the birds and butterflies, slaughter the songs… bring Jesus down from Heaven and crucify him, hunt Al-Buraq (i.e., flying steed of Islam's Prophet Muhammad; see note below), digest the mountains in your stomachs, expel the olive trees from the land, and prevent the sun from shining, as it shines only for the sake of Jerusalem – which is ours from before Adam (i.e., the first man created by God mentioned in the Bible) and until after the resurrection of the dead."

Al-Buraq – According to Islamic tradition, Al-Buraq is the miraculous flying steed upon which Islam's Prophet Muhammad is said to have rode during his Night Journey from Mecca to "al aqsa mosque", i.e., "the farthest mosque" (Quran, Sura 17).

Director of the Yasser Arafat Museum Muhammad Halayqa: “There are many pictures of the [Palestinian] suffering. I will give a small example, the Palestinians have experienced many massacres, and there are perhaps dozens. Some of them are documented, and some of them are undocumented, but we do not have one picture related to them. That is to say, there are general pictures, but we cannot say that this picture is of the massacre at Deir Yassin, or Qibya, or Tantur (apparently refers to Tantura; see notes below -Ed.).”

Official PA TV host: “General pictures.”

Muhammad Halayqa: “Pictures or documents that are related. However, in actuality, the massacres and mass murders occurred, but there is nothing to connect between them and documents, pictures, films, and such.

Perhaps they exist somewhere. In other words, perhaps the Israelis are keeping them, but we Palestinians do not have pictures and documents regarding these massacres, as we are talking about the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) and the uprooting of the Palestinians. This is an example of one of the problems we have run into at the Yasser Arafat Museum while covering this section. It was not easy. Therefore we expressed [the massacres] through drawing [and] artistic creation that hint at these massacres.”

Deir Yassin - On April 9, 1948, Jewish fighters from the Irgun and Lehi military groups, part of the forces opening the blockaded road to Jerusalem, attacked the Arab village of Deir Yassin.

We and the world have seen the completion of the sins, the completion of the sin of Palestine’s Nakba, in that America came to transfer its embassy [to Jerusalem] and to falsely say… that it is the eternal capital of the Jewish people. This is what they are saying about Jerusalem! As if Jerusalem has no people, and has no owners, and as if it has no people, and as if they are the ones who built it; even though the facts of history determine that those who built Jerusalem are us, the Jebusite Canaanite Arabs, and they gave it its name, and they set it as their capital (sic., archaeological finds have proven a Jewish role in building and developing Jerusalem; the Jebusites and Canaanites were not Arabs)… The one responsible for all of this is first of all the USA.
